I've been using dtSearch to create an index of documents for a website, when I noticed the search text wasn't being highlighted in Adobe Reader like it used to with prior versions. I investigated further, and it appears Adobe decided to disable Hit Highlighting by default when it released Abobe Reader 9. This isn't ideal for me, as would mean all the users of the website would need to enable this feature in Adobe Reader.
I'm currently looking for a better solution, but for now this is how you enable hit highlighting in Adobe Reader 9:
- Go to Edit -> Preferences.
- Select Search in the Categories section.
- Check the box to Enable search highlights from external highlight server.
- Click OK.
If you're using Adobe Reader X
then things are different once again. For this you need to download a plugin from the dtSearch website
